Almost everyone has experienced the “struggle” of lugging coolers, umbrellas, chairs, and more across hot sand as the sun beats down. Sam Abella and Jude Vaughan, both 16-year-old juniors at Lower Merion High School, have a fix for that. The two aimed to improve the experience for beach-goers at Long Beach Island and Brigantine, both along the Jersey shore, by co-founding Perfect Beach Day NJ. Through their company they provide a variety of services for beach-goers including rentals of coolers, beach chairs, beach tags and other essentials that might be hard to find or too cumbersome to shlep back and forth. Abella and Vaughan spoke with The Escape Home’s Angelina Nelson about their venture.
